Omni reservations now available online

You can now make reservations for the Omni online! There was a glitch that prevented the proper rate for a triple-occupancy room from being registered; it kept registering $112.50 instead of $115. The Omni's I.T. folks couldn't fix it, so they decided it was easier just to give us the triple-occupancy rooms for $112.50!

Anthrocon announces its 2008 "Guest of OK"

He helped to bring us Disney's Robin Hood, The Jungle Book, and 101 Dalmations. He was the first African American animator to work at Disney, and one of the few people to have worked under the direct supervision of Walt Disney himself. Even so, Floyd Norman is an almost painfully modest man, so modest that he was very reluctant to accept the title of Guest of Honor. Anthrocon, therefore, is pleased to welcome Floyd in 2008 as our first-ever "Guest of OK!"
